Delicious Green Olive Bread

Fresh Green Olive BreadBaking good bread is an art very few master to perfection. Today's bread has the goodness of wheat bran and green olives. It's full of fiber as well as anti-oxidants to make your breakfast, a healthy one. Although, one can also use black olives for this recipe, using semi-dried green olives will give you the best results. Since this bread contains green olives, you cannot keep it for a longer period. I generally make it on the weekends in limited quantity so that it can be consumed on the very same day. You can also shred the olives into much smaller pieces to let them evenly and densely spread within the dough. There's no harm adding a bit of cashew nut or almond pieces within this nutritious bread.
